Today I managed to split my existing setup of one partitition for /,
/usr, /var into a three partition setup, by using cp -a. 

Did you change /etc/fstab according to your setup?
Are the necessary modules for the jaz drive includes via /etc/modules
or compiled in?

Where exacly does the boot process stop?
